Rate adjustment 22

In 2020, just at the beginning of the Pandemic we did a slight rate increase. In part, it was to be competitive with other accommodations in the area. Once the issues and guidelines for the Pandemic started, we found our cost to maintain the cabins increased too.

This year, as we are sure everyone has noticed, the price of everything has gone up over the past 2 years: food, gas, fuel for our homes, housing, etc..   Jackman resident and Businesses have the same cost increase.   CMP customers can understand this too.

So again, we raised our base rates but keeping our per person rate lower so still, the more people in a cabin, the less cost per person.

The new rates are listed on the website rates tab and will be in effect February 11th, 2022 for any new reservations made starting May 1st. If you have made reservations for the upcoming year before this date, the old rates, of course,  will be honored.

We do hope to offer various discounts throughout the year. such as: “March Madness”;  “couples discount” – if a couple, meaning you can share the same bed, rents a large cabin for 6, we will take X amount off;   If one person rents a small cabin, some discount;  Active duty service families, discount.   We will not accept plastic for these discounts

Beside our weekly discount, our Deer Season discount, and our mid week winter discount, which is standard, all other discounts will be posted here on the blog.  When you make your reservation or check in, you will need to tell us you saw the discount on our blog to benefit from these extra discounts.

 

February 2022 Trail Report

Boy it has been a cold winter so far this year.  This is keeping the good snow on the trails.

I still do not think we have had the usual amounts of snowfall last month but so far the trails are all in good condition down to Parlin, over to Rockwood, up to Pittston and to the border.

This was on the Jan 28th, before the Nor’easter.

 

And this one was after the storm.

Yesterday and into the night, we did get about another 5-8 inches of snow here in town.  It was difficult to measure it as again, the winds kept it moving. At least for us, it was an all snow event.

Today it is still cold but the skies are blue and the sun is shining.  It should be a good week to ride.

As for riding the lakes, use extreme caution.   Even though most of Big Wood is quite frozen, there are reports of slush pockets at the southern end (near River outlet) as well as snow drifts.    Rockwood is also reporting issues on Moosehaed,.  Please stay on Marked trails.

We appreciate the groomers of the Border Riders Club as well as surrounding clubs that make our trails in the region some of the best. Please join and support the clubs where you ride.

 

Mid January 2022 Trail Report

Here we are January 14th of the new year waiting on the big snow.  The good news is that we have had a few decent snowfalls and the temperatures have been pretty low. We had bouts of maybe 2-4 inches fall here in town but at higher elevations, reports of 5-6 inches.

Early January, the club did go out and start rolling the trails, getting them packed to ride. This week, we are hearing reports of some good riding. Summit riders reported that they were able to groom south of Jackman. And Pittston Farm has been grooming also. State there could be some rough areas but they were pleased with the results.

There is some logging happening north of the clubhouse.  You can take the lake trail to the clubhouse but you cannot ride west of US 201. The ITS trail east side of 201 to the border is open. Please be aware of signage.  If it says “NO RIDING” stay clear.

This is a photo Heidi shared from her ride last week from Jackman to Pittston.

Looks pretty good to me.

Happy Holidays

If you have ever stayed with us in the past, you know that every year I send out holiday postcards to our past guests.  Unless you have stayed here multiple times though, I can only keep records back 3 years. SO if it has been awhile since we have seen you, or you have moved, you may not get a Holiday card.  Sorry.
Please know that we are so thankful to all who have stayed with us in the past and especially those who keep coming back.

This Holiday season we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and may you all have a Joyous, HEALTHY, and prosperous new year.

Fall foliage

Driving around Jackman, the colors are really starting to pop.  At least in a bit higher elevations.  Here in town, the red maples are not quite in full color yet.  Take a drive though, you will be surprised what you see.   Our ATV guests have also shared some great photos.

Our guests enjoy nesting

Many of our guests, especially the ones who come back year after year, like to “nest” and add their own comforts of home.  This is what Cindy and Jeremy bring every summer.

They enjoy cooking outside. They have a grill, cast iron pots and pans and a smoker.  They made us pancakes on the grill and we spent a day hanging out with them and other friends while smoking a pork and beef roast using rubs they got form Sawyers Maple.
